Turn 3, sure, but turn 1 was stupid and making it last more than one turn was even dumber. This card was not made using what we call common sense and because of the Rogue List Bandai can just make these cards and then go "derp let's Rogue List it because we have that in case this card is too strong". The Rogue List being there shouldn't be an excuse for them to make whatever card, let it have some stupid price and then Rogue it for the sake of the game when they could've used both common sense and testing to avoid this. Mifune may not be on the level of Jonin's Intervention but it was a stupid card to make overall.
It's not true that Errata is not used to nerf cards. Example: Jirobo State 2 Entrance Cost. The "it works as intended" excuse is the same as saying "it's not broken", which is a ridiculous thing to say. It's like saying "yes, we want to have an extremely strong and splashable ninja card which requires no skill on your part to use its effect". Heck, even Naraka isn't like that, at least it has Sacrifice (but it's something similar). Sorry but these are cards made for retards and they dumb down the quality of the game.
And also, to those claiming it doesn't matter which ninja gets such a strong effect - of course it does! The people who don't care about something like that are a minority compared to those who do. Do they honestly believe 100-200 people (which is what SJCs/Gencon Block format have of AT MOST) can be considered a majority if we look at the amount of people buying and playing the game? Go tell the thousand of fans who do that it doesn't matter that Madara and about 20 other ninjas gets a weaker effect than Mifune, even if they're much stronger than him in the story. It's one thing to try and maintain the balance in the CCG, but things like this completely ruins the immersion and lacks any balance whatsoever.
